The hair particle drawing project is a drawing engine based around a particle FX engine I wrote for a game. I modified the particles to behave like growing hair. Hair growing in darker areas grows longer, thicker and maintains a tighter curl. Hair grows over time to create the image.
Who could be a more perfect subject for a hair particle drawing project than Meret Oppenheim? Oppenheim was the artist who made the very famous fur lined teacup. The photo this image is sampled from was taken in 1937 by Man Ray.
This project was featured in Wired Magazine’s Beyond the Beyond Blog by Futurist Bruce Sterling.
